Indian cricket team manager Mayank Sekhar was admitted to a local hospital here late last night with flu-like symptoms, a day after pacer S Sreesanth was diagnosed with swine flu.

"The manager has been admitted to the (Fortis) hospital only as a precautionary measure after he developed cough and cold," Joint Secretary of Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) G S Walia said.

Meanwhile, the Indian cricket team has been advised to report to the team management and hotel doctors if they show flu-like symptoms.

Walia said specific tests for swine flu will only be done if the players show symptoms.

"The tests for swine flu will only be done if there are any symptoms of flu. Otherwise, players can just have a routine medical checkup," Walia said.

Sreesanth was admitted to the Fortis hospital on Thursday night and the in-form speedster remains under the doctors' observation following multiple ailments.

Tests had confirmed that he is suffering from H1N1 influenza, according Joint Secretary of Punjab Cricket Association G S Walia.

Director of Fortis, Mohali, Dr A R Banerjee told PTI that the Kerala cricketer, who has been ruled out of today's Twenty20 International against Sri Lanka, is doing better now.
